Glass beads are a less damaging blasting media that will leave the substrate of the blast undamaged but will still remove light coatings. Glass beads produce the best results when used on softer metals such as brass, aluminum, plastic, die-cast surfaces.
Glass beads abrasive media contain no free silica particles and will not leave toxin in the environment or impart a residue onto the blasted surface. Glass beads also will not cause dimensional changes to the base part being cleaned.
Glass beads abrasive media will leave an even and spherical impressions on the blasted surface after the cleaning process.
The media is most suitable for use with blasting systems set to 80psi max pressure or a typical blast pot running at a max pressure of 40psi.
